Grand Union Community Energy is recruiting

Grand Union Community Energy (GUCE) is a community benefit society which has been an inspiration to local energy groups, being one of the first to set up independently and create revenue from putting solar panels on the school in Kings Langley.

They have two opportunities for the right person or people. Both roles are part-time.

Development Officer for Transition Streets (part-time, flexible, paid)

With energy prices escalating, and a government strategy that seems to have forgotten about insulating homes, what can we do to save on the costs of our energy, food and transport costs?

Grand Union Community Energy (GUCE) is running a new wave of the “Transition Streets” project, which is designed to enable households within a neighbourhood to learn together how to reduce both their bills and their environmental impact.

GUCE is looking to appoint a paid freelance Development Officer for this project. Based in Dacorum, the postholder will be demonstrably committed to the vision and aims of the Transition Network, and show real energy and enthusiasm for the project. They must be well-organised, have good people and IT skills, and be able and willing to work some evenings/weekend hours.

Secretary (part-time, voluntary)

GUCE currently has 40 Members, of whom 3 are Directors. One of the Directors is also the Secretary, who provides relevant advice to enable the Board to carry out its function. It is sometimes difficult to see how to contribute to making a difference on climate change, and taking on this role represents a great opportunity to help an effective organisation.

The role is voluntary, normally 3-5 hours/week, and offers practical experience of working in a co-operative society. Reasonable expenses will be reimbursed and training provided.
